2 Suspects Sought In South San Francisco Armed Robbery

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – South San Francisco Police are searching for two men suspected in an armed robbery last week where an employee was attacked.

Police said around 9:20 p.m. on Thursday, the suspects walked into a business on the 300 block of Grand Avenue. One of the suspects attempted to pry open a vending machine, while another stood by as a lookout.

When the suspects were confronted by the employee, police said one suspect ran out of the business, while another grabbed a cash register on his way out.

The employee ran after the suspects and caught up to them at a pedestrian walkway connecting Grand Avenue and 4th Lane. Police said a physical struggle then took place between the employee and the suspect who stole the cash register. The second suspect also brandished a stun gun.

According to officers, the employee was able to defend himself, but the suspects were able to get away on foot. They were last seen running west on 4th Lane towards Maple Avenue.
